Saint Patrick’s Day, which started as a religious holiday, has grown into a secular celebration of the Irish culture in general and is observed on March 17th! The celebration includes prominent displays of the color green, shamrocks, leprechauns and pots of gold! The “luck of the Irish” is epitomized by the leprechaun who bring luck, smiles, a bit of mystical magic and untold riches!
Let’s all be a bit Irish this St. Patrick’s Day and reap the benefits of all of this luck to last us all year long! We all have a bit of magic within us if we simply believe it’s true! Haven’t you ever experienced a time when EVERYTHING went right? All the pieces fell into place? Felt like you were in the right place at the right time? Everything you touched turned out right? Did you chalk it up to lucky forces outside of yourself or did you choose to take credit for your smooth wonderful day?
Some will say that we are to “create our own luck” and this concept of luck has nothing to do with success. If you have a choice between being good or lucky, choose lucky because people will think you’re good! Sometimes you can do everything right and still not achieve success in real estate. Fate and luck play a big role in business and hard work and preparation also have their integral roles in financial success! Are you doing the things you need to do to take advantage of the fortunes that come your way? Do you know your craft?

Financially successful people in the real estate business attribute their success to two things: luck & timing! The good news is that there is more than one way to put yourself in a position to meet others who need your services and get those magical two elements to coincide! However, keen preparation and the ability to effectively communicate what you know and how it can help others is the key element that turns that timing INTO luck for you to achieve success in this real estate sales business that you have chosen to pursue.
So, when you experience something good and wonderful and easy, stop and recognize that situation; relish in those feelings and ask for more of the same! Whether you believe in serendipity or that you create your own luck, perhaps your fortune lies somewhere in between… never look a gift horse(shoe) in the mouth! In preparation, do what you need to do to turn that timing and luck into opportunity, a commission check and a referral!
The more you accept and bless abundance in your life, the more will be bestowed upon you and the “luckier” you will be! Let St. Patrick’s Day be the reminder to always look for pots of gold at the end of every rainbow you create in your life! “Erin go Braugh!”
